I was going to suggest the same thing. I've called Chorus Jig as a triplet. B-2 
just has the 1's swing down to the bottom of the set. I've used this dance in a 
family dance/barn dance type situation with no problems.. It certainly teaches 
the contra corners figure.

If you ever do triplets at your dance, you could teach the figure in a triplet 
first.  Ted's Triplet #7 uses it, if I recall correctly.

I’d make sure that the dancers had already successfully danced every other move 
in the dance you want to call with contra corners. That way you could focus on 
the contra corners and the dancers would understand where they would be at the 
beginning and end of the move.
